Welcome to my guide for newly release creative books. These are some of my favorite artsy books that have come out the past two weeks. I thought that you would enjoy a look at some new and inspiring books to help you on your path to creativity.

I enjoy being creative; whether it's in my crafting room, in the kitchen, puttering in my garden (or planning for spring days when I can plant one), relaxing and destressing while coloring, or behind my camera. I love to try new things, but sometimes I need a little help understanding how to do things. I search out books to help me understand different techniques I'm not familiar with.

I hope that you find a book or two here that will enrich your life, inspire you to try something new, or help you plan for future projects.

In my home, I love fast and easy recipes. Mornings and after school are always so rushed, so having a simple recipe that I can turn to is a must. These cinnamon rolls are a hit for breakfast with some fruit salad and yogurt, or as an after school treat. Serve them and watch them disappear from the plate!


Creative Books Published This Week

Each week there are a plethora of books published. When you go to the bookstore, most don't carry a large selection of books for creatives. When you look online you get too many results. That's what I'm here for. I will create a round up of creative books that are published that week. You can see the newest books on quilting , cooking, crochet, coloring, gardening, and more.

Newly published books to help you be creative

When I have free time and I'm not crafting, you can most likely find me with a book in my hand. Early last year I started a book blog, Ali's Book Nook, where I share reviews and weekly new book lists for all ages - both fiction and nonfiction. The past few weeks I found more creative books for my nonfiction book section than I had room to include. I decided that I would share those here so the people that come to visit for home decor projects, sewing tutorials, and delicious recipes will have a list of new books that fit perfectly with their interests.


Crafty and Creative Project Goals 2017

At the beginning of a new year, it's a time to start fresh and plan goals for the year. When I sat down to think about this new year full of possibilities, my thoughts turned to which creative projects I want to work on.

Simple craft projects planned in 2017 to make and share

To me crafting is a way to relax, enjoy time creating a piece that I have envisioned, make something beautiful for my home or as a gift for others. We all need a hobby or something we are passionate about, and for me that is crafting.

I love to look at crafting items and imagine how I would use them to create a new piece of decor, imagine how pretty papers can turn into a card to brighten someone's day, look at nature in this wonderful world and capture the beauty with my camera to share with others.
